Who doesn't need a house help?

Like many women, after each child was born, we were torn between the desire to be the best mom for our children and the wish to continue to progress with our career life.

But with three little kids whose lives I wanted to be part of, I couldn't see any way to continue on the same career path I had been on when I was still single. I needed a job that would not only challenge and keep me engaged mentally, but would also let me get to my kids' school activities, and where I wouldn't be causing any crisis if I needed to stay home with a sick child.

Working from home seemed to be one of the best alternatives. But finding balance while dealing with work and trying to attend to children's needs was going to be difficult also.

Aside from taking care of our children, our spouse, and our home, we also have our own needs - for exercise, companionship, relaxation, rest, and self-care. And we simply cannot do everything...

Hiring a housekeeper to delegate some of our housework is a way to manage our time more efficiently and it can be affordable, even for those on a tight budget.  It is really hard to find the time or energy for family outings and hubby date nights when we spend our time cooking, cleaning, and taking care of our children. If our schedule is already overwhelming, keeping our house in order becomes a daunting task that can take a toll on our marriage, as well as our health.

Even the best CEO's delegates.  Let's learn how to do that at home and at work, and we'll be a happy woman. The best bosses in the world know how to help their staff take over tasks that they are capable of doing or capable of learning how to do. We can provide the support and encouragement that makes it possible for our staff to grow and develop skills - and ultimately to take over the work.

Whether we are busy with our family and our career, or just want some occasional house help, getting a helper is not only practical, it's a lifesaver.   With little kids, and with part-time work from home--  who doesn't need a house help?

A Motto to Live By

When the world gets you down,
put things in perspective.

Move ahead in a positive way;
don't allow yourself to become mired
in a negative view.

See things for what they really are.
Don't let the little things get in the way.

Do what you can, however you can,
with the resources you have available
to you.
Don't sell yourself short;
you have the power within you
to change what needs changing.

Face the situation with the resolve
to remedy it; do what you need to do
to put it behind you.

Move ahead in the direction of happiness;
go for your dreams
and reach for your star.

And remember who's in the driver's seat:
you are.

There is no greater challenge or more profound joy in a woman's life than that of motherhood.

The Miracle of Life

Life is precious
We hear it so often
it becomes
a litany without meaning
until the moment when
life explodes upon you
Pain and ecstasy at once
place within your arms that perfect
precious entity
The absolute realization of an idea
that words keep in the shadow
of our consciousness
A kind universe
The smiling face of God
Good beyond measure
This tiny individual --
this proof of hope and truth
and all things beautiful
The wonder of creation that is
your child.

Children, our Pride and Joy

A child is a touch that bonds you for life

A smile that makes your heart soar

They are our pride and joy

Their happiness becomes yours and whose pain is harder to take than your own

Their laughter lights up your life and their tears will break your heart..

A child is LOVE that goes so deep it becomes part of your soul

A Mother's Love is Forever

There is an overwhelming feeling of love that fills a mother's heart whenever she stops and thinks of what a miracle her children are to her life and how absolutely wonderful her life is because of them.

All parents feel a special kind of endless love for their children, yet there is no way for a child ever to comprehend the depth of that love until the day comes when they are parents, too.

A child is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous. A Child is full of beauty and forever beautiful. A child is loving and caring and truly amazing.

Time will pass by, and so many things will change, but the absolute joy that a child brings to life will only grow deeper and more important.

I cant wait to see my second child soon...

A Lifetime of Happiness Begins When You Become a Mother

Nothing can quite compare to the joy of being a mother.

No words can describe the happiness that having a baby brings or come close to expressing the pride and love you feel the moment you first hold your child in your arms.

Being a mother is a special gift that fills your life with happiness, love, and a lifetime of memories..

This may be late, but I want to greet all moms, Happy Mothers' Day! Nothing really beats the fulfillment of being a mom!
